The band is famously known for their attention-grabbing appearence and anti-image concept with the members wearing matching uniform jumpsuits and homemade masks whilst being referred to by numbers zero through to eight. Rick Anderson of Allmusic said "You thought Limp Bizkit was heavy? They're The Osmonds. Slipknot is something else entirely." The band's primary influences include Black Sabbath, Slayer, Judas Priest, Korn, AC/DC, Kiss and Beastie Boys, developing a lean and aggressive brand of metal formed from thrash, hardcore and death metal. Known for often chaotic and energetic live shows, and their extreme performance style provided by their large line-up, Robert Cherry of Rolling Stone compared the band's sound to "a threshing machine devouring a military drum corps" Paul Tappenden Marketing Director for the venue said "We've played host to some seriously heavy bands over the years, but this has got to be the most outrageous one yet!"
